The Lyrics

I wrote this as a homage to my new shoes, that kept making me feel like I had a brick on each foot.
I've gotta be running,
Going out of my home,
You got me walking
That you're wasting my time.
Don't slow me down!
No, no, no, no, no!
*painful groan*
I tell you once more
Before I walk out that door,
Don't slow me down!

Some people say I should wear trainers,
But I'm so sure that I need a profession.
Don't slow me down!
No, no, no, no, no!
*painful groan*
I tell you once more
Before I walk out that door,
Don't slow me down!

Don't slow me down, boots!
Don't slow me down, boots!
Don't slow me down, boots!
Don't slow me down!

What happened to the shoes I used to know,
I must've let my comfort overgrow.
Don't slow me down!
No, no, no, no, no!
*painful groan*
I tell you once more
Before I walk out that door,
Don't slow me down!

We're always talking about slippers and nikes,
One of these days we'll to have dress up right.
Don't slow me down!
No, no, no, no, no!
*painful groan*
I tell you once more
Before I walk out that door,
Don't slow me down!

Don't slow me down, boots!
Don't slow me down, boots!
Don't slow me down, boots!
Don't slow me down!

I'm looking good,
Just like a cat on the grass,
But I might as well be walking on glass.
Don't slow me down!
No no no no no no no no no!
*painful groan*
I tell you once more
Before I walk out that door,
Don't slow me down!

You got me limping,
Got me crawling this way;
Got to get to college on time every day!
Don't slow me down!
No, no, no, no, no!
*painful groan*
I tell you once more
Before I walk out that door,
Don't slow me down down down down down down!

I tell you once more
Before I walk out that door,
Don't slow me down!

This is just how I feel whenever I get some new shoes - they pinch a lot!
